How to Choose the Right Size Grow Tent
For personal growers, grow tents are the best way to use limited space and resources at their maximum level by creating optimal conditions for growing. Whether you know exactly how many plants you need, or only have a specific area to work with, this blog will explain what size grow tent is right for you.
Why is it so important to choose the right tent size?
Use a grow tent that is too large and you may end up paying more than you need for heating, lighting, and other hydroponics equipment.
Choose one that is too small and may overcrowd, creating an environment unsuitable for mature plants.
How many plants per grow tent?
Grow 4 small plants or 2 medium plants from veg to flower: 2X2 ft grow tent
Grow 4-6 full-size plants from veg to flower: 3X3 ft grow tent
Grow 2-4 plants full cycle, or 6-8 smaller plants during the vegetative stage: 4X2 ft grow tent
Harvest 6+ medium to large plants every 3 months: 4X4 ft grow tent
Grow 9-12 full-size plants from seed to harvest: 5×5 ft grow tent
Does growing more plants in one grow tent equal more yield?
Squeezing as many plants as possible into a tent does not necessarily equal higher yields, e.g. overcrowding 2-3 adult size plants into a 2X2ft grow tent
In addition, the light will also be an important factor. If your light isn’t powerful enough, you may end up with the same harvest from 3 to 4 plants as 1 or 2 plants
For tents of different sizes, the lights we recommend you use are as follows
